Reviewed March 11, 2013

I booked three rooms on the club floor and as soon as I arrived the experience was just poor.
Positives
1. Location close to the airport
2. New hotel and so rooms are of a good standard
Negatives
1. On arrival check in was painful and no ambassador benefits
2. The hotel has an issue with the door lock system, apparently they are having major issues, I could not get access to my room and had to wait in club while new keys were obtained from reception.
3. Club floor service was terrible and not worth the extra cost.
4. Breakfast is very limited, if you order eggs they are made in the main kitchen and bought up. In my case I gave up after waiting 20 min.
5. After breakfast I could not gain access to my room again due to key card issues
6. On checkout the visa machine was not working resulting in a further wait.

Over all I left feeling very frustrated and did not have a positive feeling from my stay, not what you should expect from a hotel of this standard and part of IHG!

I stayed at this hotel a year ago as a gold member and the service wasn't bad i came back here as a platinum member and got the worst service ever, reception was unresponsive and had limited English speaking skills,
the rooms are small facilities just ok,
At the pullman in the airport i got much better service even though i am not even a member of the accor card.

Have stayed at this hotel a few times. Always a nice experience.

The staff is always very helpful and attentive. It's a 10-15 minute ride from the airport to the hotel. They have a shuttle, but I have not used it.

Rooms are good size, clean, and a nice bathroom. They are quiet, even though the hotel is not far from the airport.

Garden Cafe restaurant has a nice breakfast buffet - and they know how to cook bacon (crispy)!! Good variety of western and asian style foods. Same for dinner - basically something for every taste.

Lobby Lounge/Bar is nice to relax in (and get a simple meal, if you want). The entertainment (a Filipino duo) is not too exciting. Would like to see them get a decent band/entertainer, or just put up some plasma screens and show some sports, etc. The staff at the lounge bar are GREAT.

Overall, my first choice when staying in GZ, by far.

My third time and here and still loving this hotel! I stayed at the club floor. Good rooms with desk to do some work and a ethernet line for internet. Free wifi in the hotel at every floor!

The hotel is not far from the airport and is a good choice for business travelers.

It's been several months since I stayed here, yet as a platinum member and making it a point to stay here every time I stay in GZ I felt I needed to inform those who consider to stay here.

Although rather far from the city center this hotel is a major gem. Very close to the airport and the only restaurant in the area to serve decent western food.

Spacious rooms, well decored and clean areas make this a esthetic ally pleasing to the eye and touch.

Staff is very curtious, happy and helpful.

Exceptional value. The rooms are well priced and approx 40-50% less than the Portman at the airport about 15-20 min away.

The CP Huadu is a exceptional value upscale hotel. The best in the area. No question.

very nice hotel, comfortable and spacious rooms.
real fast check-in / fast check out.
met the director at breakfast, overlooking the good behavior of his staff; no wonder this makes the staff meeting the challenhing expectation of the business travellers.

Room Tip: the higher the better, for the view (evenso the fog is terrible !)
